Meet cute

According to the online Cambridge dictionary a “meet cute” is defined as:

(in a film, etc.) a humorous or interesting situation in which two people meet, that leads to them developing a romantic relationship with each other

I completely love a good meet cute in a movie. I was searching for a few the other day (how I came to do so doesn’t really matter) but they never seem to show them quite how I want them, i.e. they only show a small part or I can’t find them as a scene as such. So, I decided to open an Instagram account and share some meet cutes in movies and on TV that I like! Not sure how long I will be able to keep up posting meet cutes but this past weekend I posted three as a test and it’s fun, so I’ll be continuing this for a little while at least.

I started with a Ronald Colman one from the 1931 movie Arrowsmith:

… followed by the wonderful meet cute from one of my fave movies ever, Roman Holiday

This evening I posted a third from the 2011 movie The Adjustment Bureau which has one of my fave meet cutes ever.

Well, I say this is one of my favourites but I have so many that I love! And so I will keep exploring and collecting them on my new Instagram account and will link to them here on blog as well. Posting 3 meet cutes may be a bit of initial overkill. I already have more clips lined up, but will post them another time. Maybe I will make this a “Meet Cute Sunday” item on my blog? We’ll see where this little journey will take me…

  2. Great clips! All the meet cutes that come to mind start in conflict (as I suppose many film romances do). One of my favourite films is Bringing up Baby, so Cary Grant and Kathryn Hepburn meeting on the golf course is my favourite meet cute.
